The next version of ASP.NET, dubbed as vNext has been redisigned from the ground up. The goal is to create a lean and composable .NET stack for building modern, cloud-based apps. You don’t need to use Visual Studio to develop vNext applications. You can develop and run vNext on platforms that VStudio doesn’t run on; however, Visual Studio has the best development experience.
Features of ASP.NET vNext:
MVC has no dependency on System.Web.
vNext apps can use a cloud-optimized subset of .NET Framework.
Reduced footprint of the cloud-optimized framework.
Cloud optimized framework in a collection of NeGet packages.
